The 100 mile course has roughly 9,000 feet of climbing. The route starts with an early morning south loop to the Ivy Park rest stop. Then it climbs the east side of the Oakland-Berkeley hills via Pinehurst Road, and follows the ridge up and over Grizzly Peak and into Tilden Park to the rest stop at Island Picnic Area. It then heads north to the edge of the Bay and the Carquinez Strait to the rest stop at Port Costa. From there it climbs McEwen Road for a run down into Franklin Canyon and Alhambra Valley, then over Pig Farm Hill and through the hills around Briones Reservoir to the rest stop at Briones Regional Park. Finally, relatively easy riding on Moraga Way takes you back to the start for the post-ride meal.

Alternative Car-Free Start

Our car-free start is at Island Picnic Area, which is the second rest stop on the 100 mile course. Depending on where you join the route, you may or may not stop at Ivy Park, the first rest stop. In any case, once you are on the route, follow it to the hot barbecue meal at St Mary's College. Then, ride as much or as little of the official south loop as makes sense for your return trip home. The rest stop at Ivy Park closes at 2pm.
